POWER BALL LOTTERY EXECUTIVES TAKE NOTICE :
In these difficult times and the people that usually play power ball are usually those that have barely 2 pennies to rub together...
They think "sucking" more money out of each player will get more people to play ?? ***Making it "Easy" (like when power ball first started) will get more people to play!***
I think Power Ball will suffer. They think this lottery is suffering, wait til the changes come in Jan. * Also it's not "just" the power ball lottery. They think they are the only lottery "suffering" ?? They better "Hope" that the economy Improves. That's the only way more people are going to play more. If people have a full time, "secure" job and have all their bills paid and a roof over their heads... then they will play.
I think Power Ball should think of lowering the pick five numbers as well. What about making them
from 1 to 42 ... that was the highest they went to when they first started... right? and keeping it at
1$ not 2$... with their power play option ( that's the power ball executives preverbal "Icing on the cake") There are also very good options for change that other power ball players have posted here. I think Power Ball executives should consider them "All" before undertaking "Their" changes in Jan.
It seems as if power ball executives have gotten greedy. What, power play isn't the cream on their coffee anymore?
The gambling public isn't "Stupid" like they think. The "Little" "Piddling" changes won't have people winning more often. That is what Power Ball said when they increased the pick 5 and the power ball numbers. OOOOooooo, another 2% easier to win.... OOooo I'm just shaking with anticipation to want to buy a ticket to win ! (not )
Power Ball players are the gambling and the poor public.
They are "Dreamers" hoping to win the jackpot.
They have stars in their eyes when they pay for their Power Ball tickets. Hoping to "Win" the Big one ! Hoping that "When" they hit it, they can "dig them selves out of the
Financial hole they are in". Hope that their lives will be a little better for a little while.
"Hope" is the one thing the Power Ball lottery has that is keeping them going.
Keeping all the lotteries going.
If the Lottery jacks up the price of "Hope"... "Hope" is going to go into the gutter.
and that's where the power ball lottery will be.
Me.. I "Hope" once in a while. I don't play all the time, every drawing. There probably are people that do. I think those people are the gamblers that "Can't" stop. Those are the people that loose their jobs, their families and their homes because they can't stop. they have a problem.
Because of the economy and the fact that I now have a part time job (which is better than nothing) I wait til the kitty is large and only play 5 or 10 bucks, no power play. if the cost of playing were to go to 10 or 20 bucks.... I wont be playing that often if at all.
If Power Ball does go thru with it and goes to 2$ per play...
I'll be "Hoping" that mega millions or megga bucks come to LA !
HEAR THAT MEGGA BUCKS ?? MEGA MILLIONS??? .... COME ON DOWN !
